My Very Own Treats Now Available at Cultured Caveman

Today marks the first day that my treats are available for purchase at the Paleo food cart, Cultured Caveman! Wahoo … so thrilling!

I went in this morning and Joe (one of the owners) gave me the lowdown and more or less a tour of the cart. I mean tour in the sense that he got me acquainted with the space because basically, you walk in, look right, left, forward, up and around, and see it all. A tight space, indeed. It was neat to see how things operate though, as it was my first time ever setting foot inside a food cart.

Joe left me to do my thing, so I went to town. I brought all my ingredients with me and even brought my own apron (a pretty frilly one my sister bought me … I’ll get a pic next time). It was challenging working in such a small area without much counter space, but I adjusted and figured it out quickly. Before I knew it, I was processing, chopping, mixing and rolling. I made 99 cherry nut balls and 63 salted almond, which yielded 33 cherry nut packs and 21 salted almond!

The treats are packaged three per baggie and cost $2. Salted almond may always be one of my staple flavors, but the other flavor will rotate. I can’t wait to see how these suckers go over! If you live in Portland, I encourage you to go to the Cultured Caveman cart on NE 15th and Alberta, and check out my goodies. If you do, please give me feedback!

    Congrats on an awesome opening day! Joe and I are super pumped to have both you and your goodies around! Glad you made it work in such a tight space… you learn to love it after a while and working in a normal sized kitchen becomes amazing and luxurious. 🙂

      Thanks, Heather! I’m super grateful for you and Joe giving me this opportunity and it’s been really fun so far. I’m sure I will definitely learn to love the tiny work space. It’s truly amazing what a person can do in such little space! I have a small kitchen at home, but based on what you said, maybe it will start to feel huge and spacious! Thanks again and I look forward to seeing you when you return.
